LaLiga chief Javier Tebas: 'If Lionel Messi leaves Barca it would not be a drama.'

According to reports, the Nerazzurri are plotting a sensational move for Barca's Messi.

'If Lionel Messi leaves it would not be a drama,' says LaLiga chief Javier Tebas. Tebas has no doubt that the Spanish top flight will still be effective without the Barcelona star, who is being linked with a move to Serie A side Inter Milan. The six-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi is about to enter the final year of his contract at the Nou Camp with his current deal up in the summer of 2021.

And, reports say Antonio Conte's Inter are preparing a sensational move for the Argentina superstar. 'I do not think that the arrival of Messi can solve the problems of Serie A, which are linked to the bad relationship between debts, high and insufficient collections,' the LaLiga president said as Goal reported. 'Serie A's figures are stressed, and these economic problems certainly are not solved by Leo Messi. 'I would like Messi to stay here, but if he leaves it would not be a drama. 'It was said that without Cristiano Ronaldo the league would have lost money, and instead we have earned it, even in Portugal. Players help but are not essential to a championship.'
